In the book of John it says, “Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father but is of the world” 1 John 2:15-17 (NKJV).
Being in the world doesn’t mean we are of it. When we are in the world it means we exist in this world. When we are of the world it means we participate in the ways of the world.
Are you in the world or of it?
